We are a retired English couple, Robin and Jean and we enjoy meeting new people and hope to offer a holiday to remember for its peace and tranquility. Le Clos Jean cottages are in two sections - Jays/Finches cottage with Robins known as Le Clos Jean and Chestnut and Olives cottages known as Petite Cour. Both these Normandy Longhouses are situated in woodland gardens, safe for children.

Wow What a lovely Place ! We stayed for Christmas and New Year 2016 seeing in 2017 in the Olives,
Robin and Jean were lovely hosts and were always around if we needed anything or help, but they were not intrusive.
Very spacious kitchen with all that was needed to cook a full Christmas dinner, and then a wonderful log burner to retire by while the children made use of the TV.
The Olives had plenty of room for 4 Adults and 3 Children.
Spacious ground surrounded by fields which made a lovely short walk on a cold very frosty morning.
We were made very welcome and had a very enjoyable Christmas in the Olives.
We hope to return one summer to enjoy it in some sunny, warmer weather.
Our holiday at the Olives was a lovely and comfortable experience.The advert and photos covered the rooms accurately. The property was very clean and nicely presented. The rooms were spacious and plenty of room for a large family group and/or friends.
The owners were really friendly and provided us with lots of information from planning the route to facilities available whilst we were there. We had a large free standing pool allocated to the property which was big enough for a family to use, plus a few extra!
The property is within reach of a local kayak facility.The local town is about 1.5 miles away and very pleasant with a market, vet clinic, supermarket, bank, restaurant and bars. There is a very pretty church and at the end of town a cider and smoked sausage factory and gift shop. The property is within reasonable reach of Mount St Michel, various fun parks and beaches. We had a fabulous week.
Thanks Robin and Jean
The garden was lovely and private and the pool provided lots of fun. Wonderfully quiet, use of bikes for the children. Owners were extremely helpful.
Lovely situation for looking at the medieval history of the area plus close to good beaches.
